comment Will I lose my MozRank / MozTrust / Page Authority if I upgrade my site?
Mozwhat? MOZRank and MOZTrust are an attempt to revitalize a dead directory system that lost relevance a long time ago. It's along the same lines of the Majestic search engine that's trying to rebrand as a SEO statistics service (Marketing Search Engine).

comment Adblock Plus blocking a lot of ads on webpages that don't even have ads?
Lots of little tracker codes installed on your website? Running AddThis? The javascript spew of tracking done by that service is just amazing.

comment How can I deal with advertisement revenues lost because of adblock?
The future called again. Malware ads are being served out on trusted networks like Yahoo Ad Network. We can no longer trust any ads and a lot of us are removing Flash as well.

comment Copyright of similar domain names
Try being SparkFun.com who uses their website name under license from Oracle Corporation because Oracle owns Sun Microsystems and therefore the Sparc trademark. The legal beef came about because Spark, Sparc and things electronic were considered to be an appropriation of a registered trademark and therefore open to cease and desist until Oracle relented and gave them specific rights to use the "misspelling" of Sparc in their domain name. So, if you think you can get Facebook to license fasebook to you for running the exact same site, you have a lot of lawyer's fees in your future.

comment What is wrong with Alexa Ranking?
And the top reason for not trusting Alexa, the interested audience is only web site operators who think that Alexa has value. They're the most likely to have it installed as Cargo Cult SEO tells them it's important and that they need to install the toolbar to get ranking. Don't drink the Koolaide, don't eat the Applesauce... There's no UFO waiting behind the moon to take your soul when you transcend. If it's vital for your business, you are in the wrong business.

comment Do all domain name registrar Terms of Service indemnify the registrar for even screwing up registration
All TOS and software agreements basically say "We made it, we own it, not you, we do not promise it will be useful to you, if you use it and it destroys your computer or allows bad things to happen, we're not liable. If you have issues with this software/service, you must agree to our terms and venue of arbitration."

comment Quickly deleting lots of files using FTP?
"Quickly" and "Deleting lots of files" are two things that don't go together well when using an FTP/SFTP client to delete lots of files on a deep directory structure. Anyone who has to maintain a Magento e-commerce website can testify to this.

comment What is PageRank and how do I get it?
As of 2015, PageRank can only be measured as to where you land on SERP and even that might be suspect as Google gathers data on your search history. Google no longer makes the old PageRank number available and any website claiming to have access is either displaying old data or lying.

comment Why do search engines “lie”?
Search engines don't work the way they used to 10 to 15 years ago. Also, don't log in with an account on the service to avoid "learning" enhanced results.

comment Wrong person's photo in my Google image search
You have to be more popular than John Doe... and if you're talking about Google SERP from your own search trying something like "John Doe" -"Harry Chestnut" might do it.

comment What are the reasons for using the meta tag “noindex, follow”?
This page is of no importance; however, its links are. Layered Navigation/Search Refinement is heavy on duplicate content otherwise.

comment robots meta not blocking indexing
After the fact fix, lock down access to your staging server by IP address blocks, the whole world doesn't need access and it's easier to prevent stealth indexing that way as well.

comment Will my domain automatically renew?
Most allow for manual renewal along with the auto notification, it's not a bad idea to go ahead and do that so you don't have the auto-renewal die from something careless like a card expiration date, you know ahead of time when you get the reject as opposed to afterwards and praying the "Grace Period" isn't graceless and fumbling.

comment Google Bots Crawling my Site daily is this good or a bad thing?
If you don't want to show up in Google search, then it's a really bad thing... It's how developers prelaunch alpha code level websites in the ugly duckling, golly we didn't want the competitors to see it stage.

comment CSS Above or Below Body for Speed?
Anything that delays CSS load causes pretty horrible User Experience as a cost for the body HTML loading quicker. I've seen it in action a couple times, momentary totally broken website that finally snaps into proper view, and if it doesn't, a page reload so it finally presents properly (Recreate the scenario by clearing browser cache, inspect code, heh, so that's why). PLUS CSS is browser cached if you're doing it right so it becomes a non-issue. Most of the time your issues are the image load (reduce it) and blocking JavaScripts. And just spec out a capable server in the first place.
